As preparing things for daughter, I started to ache and getting emotional. I know this is a phase for parents too. But I’m still aching within, especially when in office, not that much when at home. I understand she’s going home 10 months later. But I can’t help keep thinking she’s not with us in family gatherings and festive seasons, or our mother-daughter Saturday brunch together, and those ballet performances. I know I will cry hard when sending her off in airport, and weep all the way back home. It’s a little bit difficult for me now. But I’m holding my emotions at home, cos obviously she is excited for her new adventures.
